The pandemic has severely impacted the education of girls from low-income homes. Since schools are closed, education has come to a standstill for many of them. This has lead to the girls falling prey to child labour, early marriage and domestic violence.
While “E-Learning” has became indispensable for many children in urban areas, children in rural areas face many challenges as they had no access to education due to factors such as lack of technological know-how, access to hi-speed internet, low digital literacy, unavailability of steady power supply and most importantly, lack of electronic devices.
THE BACK TO SCHOOL INITIATIVE
YATAN is committed to providing education for young girls whose education has been impacted due to the pandemic through their 'BACK TO SCHOOL' initiative. This initiative aims to bring back girls who were forced to drop out by conducting community-based cluster classes with proper social distancing in Lucknow and Gurgaon.
They provide free education, stationary, books and mid-day meals to girls from underprivileged homes. This helps give them a bright future and get their families out of the vicious circle of poverty that plagued them for generations. This is being done in partnership with the NGO Yatan. The NGO has educated 5000+ girls in the last 7 years in Lucknow and Gurgaon and have given them a fresh lease of life.
IT COSTS JUST INR 9300 TO EDUCATE ONE GIRL FOR A YEAR.
ALL FUNDING HAS 80G BENEFITS.
My name is Pratham Mehrotra. I am a student at the University of Warwick UK.
I have undertaken this campaign because I think it is incredible to impact the life of a girl who is not as fortunate as I am. Many families have lost their source of income during the pandemic and are unable to send their daughters to school. The financial burden of the families have fallen on the shoulders of these young girls. They are forced to work as maids, vegetable vendors, cleaners etc.
The fact that Yatan Education Centre provides a meal, education, books etc for free makes it impossible for parents NOT to send their children to study. This allows these not-so-fortunate kids to experience school life. They are often the first ones to be educated in their entire family. The cost of educating them is just INR 9300 per year and that includes education, books/stationery, mid-day meals and more.
Please support my campaign as a simple act of kindness can have a profound impact on a girl's life. Let us together lend a helping hand and support these children.

How does crowdfunding work?
Crowdfunding in India is a relatively new concept and is growing very quickly.
It’s a concept that allows a large number of funders (like you) to fund an idea or a cause or event by giving small amounts of money online. Fueladream.com is a crowdfunding platform in India that allows for such pooling of funds. You can fund innovations and ideas on FuelADream and be the first to get these products or make them come true. You can also do a good turn by funding charities and causes through crowdfunding. When you fund a charity it’s more like a donation and you get small innovative rewards like a shout-out on an FB page or a thank you email from the beneficiaries.
